She has worked in the dental field as both a certified dental assistant and an administrative office person for more than 20 years. As a native Washingtonian, she has witnessed the marked transformation that our beloved city Washington, D.C. has made. She values each person's concerns and needs and thrives on clear communication. My goal as the initial point of contact is to exceed our patients' expectations by instilling both trust and confidence with each communication.

When he is out with his family, others may ask him personal dental questions, (knowing he is a dentist). After maybe five or ten minutes of discussion, they may turn to his wife and apologize for taking up so much of his personal time. To this his wife Lily will quickly reply, 'Not a problem at all. In fact, he so loves what he does-you just made his day'

Beginning over 20 years ago when I had ground down my front teeth almost to the gum line, Dr. Starr has done major work on my teeth with great results. In the year 2001 Dr. Starr came to my rescue with a series of ten crowns that blended beautifully into a perfect smiling match that has lasted for many years. More recently, this past year three of the 20 year old crowns finally needed to be replaced, one with an implant and the other two with new crowns. It is my understanding that ceramic crown replacement is a challenging and more complicated process than the initial insertion of a crown. I watched, not in pain, but in awe, as Dr. Starr used a variety of techniques to replace these two crowns. Not that I want to have any more need for tooth replacement, if problems recur, I will call on Dr. Starr directly! Thank you Dr. Starr for all you have done for me and my teeth!! Andy Penn

Dr. Starr is an artist with color, texture and shape - what he calls bonding. It may not look like much, which says more about my shy, "selfie photography" than Dr. Starr's skills. I banged my teeth at the bottom of a pool decades ago. I called the misaligned front tooth my fang. It's NOT out there anymore! See the before (first or top) and after below.(The photo layout position varies when opened on a computer or cell.)

Dr. Starr created an entire new set of teeth for me. What Dr. Starr did was no short of Genius and Miraculous!. The Nurses : Petra and Kimberly were so supportive and caring towards me, as their own Brilliance was to help Dr. Starr. Dr. Starr would call me at home to check to see that I was OK! Even the Receptionists :Shelvia and Sylvie were extremely caring! It's truly Miracle to me! I had no teeth due to an illness more than a decade before. Dr. Starr did the impossible :Create a beautiful mouth for me. I couldn't be more appreciative and grateful. I have to learn to smile:: as I haven't smiled for so long. I will never forget my experience with Dr. Starr and his Team: and Friendships made during this process .Dr. Starr cared deeply about me: I know he will always be there for me. I would without hesitation recommend Dr. Starr and his Staff to anyone in need of Dental Work .

I can't say enough good things about the care I received from Dr. Amelia Orta, but I'll give it a shot. After experiencing a significant amount of erosion from a decade-long bed-time tea habit, I was keen to find a solution that would preserve as much of my dental structure as possible - no bridges or implants. Dr. Orta created a restoration plan that worked perfectly for me. She explained the onlay process and took the time to answer all my questions. I felt comfortable and most important - cared for - during each step in the procedure. I couldn't be happier with the results! From my first contact with super-professional Shelvia, to my interactions with Dr. Orta's very pleasant colleague, Kimberly, my experience was absolutely first rate. I would highly recommend Dr. Orta without reservation. She may not share the name, but she is clearly a "STAR" in this practice.

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Starr. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable and supremely competent as a prosthodontist, he is genuinely concerned about the patient's best interest and has great integrity. It was of utmost importance to me to find the most trustworthy prosthodontist, and I definitely found him in Dr. Starr. An absolute gentleman and a truly decent human being. You will not regret visiting him!!

Dr. Starr is a prosthodontist who cares about the well-being of his patients. His expertise is such that we have entrusted him with our care for many years and at every visit, we feel confident and secure that the very best is being done for our teeth. Dr. Starr is very thorough and renders a thoughtful diagnosis after considering the challenges his patients' teeth present. My husband and I feel we are in excellent hand with Dr. Starr and his outstanding staff.

Dr. Starr helped me solve a problem that was giving me headaches (literally) and making my jaw hurt so badly I couldn't eat solids. He spent a fair amount of time going over my history and checking my bite, and decided that drastic measures were not needed. He solved the problem by making very small adjustments to the biting surfaces and voila, no more pain! Such a great guy, and his team are fantastic too; they're very responsive.

I went to an ophthalmologist yesterday afternoon and as I entered the doctor's office her first words to me were "You have a beautiful smile". Yes, and this is all Dr. Starr's work. Our cooperation started four and a half years ago when I presented myself with a missing front tooth and no good options from my current dentist at the time. Dr. Starr assumed the situation and presented me with a plan to replace the missing tooth as well as work on adjacent teeth to give me a radiant smile. Dr. Starr is the best dentist that I have known. He stands by his work and is extremely personable and very approachable. He and the rest of the office team make going to the dentist a fun experience. I will never change dentist and recommend Dr. Starr very highly.
